Michigan has opened an application process for organizations to apply for funds through the Federal Victims Of Crime Act (VOCA).
Michigan is accepting targeted victim services proposals that identify as underserved or unserved crime victims from six purpose areas including trauma recovery centers; human trafficking intervention services; sexual assault intervention services such as core comprehensive sexual assault nurse examiners/sexual assault response teams; victims of child physical and/or sexual abuse; American Indian tribal victim assistance and elder abuse services.
The deadline is June 8, 2017.
If you are an organization in Michigan that works with underserved survivors you may be eligible to apply through this RFP process. The minimum grant award is $50,000 with a maximum award of $1 million.
Through our VOCA Funding Toolkit, and assistance from our Grassroots Capacity Building Specialist, EJUSA can help groups determine if they are eligible, answer questions about the process, and provide some support for your group’s application. Please contact Latrina Kelly-James at email@example.com or (203) 823-5826 or download the toolkit here.
For full information about the Michigan RFP process, go to Michigan’s EGrAMS Application search page and check the box for “Competitive” grant type. After you click “Find,” the VOCA application information will be available in the 2nd link, under “VOCA Services to Underserved Victims of Crime Program – 2018.”
Note: the deadline is fast approaching – June 8, 2017. Organizations must register in Michigan’s EGrAMS system in order to apply.
Our VOCA project works to bring racial equity to victim services by helping community groups serving crime survivors in communities of color to gain access to new resources. We provide training, technical assistance, and capacity building to these community groups so they know what federal VOCA funds are and how to get them.
